Telia Carrier Program Highlights
Telia Carrier, a global Internet service provider, has been providing award-winning customer services for more than 25 years and has an impressive track record for delivering rapid installation of services with customers worldwide.

- Telia Carrier Customer Portal — Allows end-user customers to grant agents access at varying levels.

The portal also contains such resources as on-net selling tools and contracts.

The Telia Carrier portal includes the ability to easily track inventory, usage, trouble tickets, invoices, customer payments, and commissions.
- Support for Partners to Deliver a Superior End-user Experience — Telia Carrier’s channel program will help partners navigate their end-users’ life-cycle management to ensure a high-quality customer experience. Telia Carrier will apply the same formula that has regularly earned the operator industry accolades for its customer service. Last fall, Telia Carrier was awarded the Best Wholesale Provider and Best Customer Service at the WCA Awards for 2019.
- No Channel Conflict — Master agents will be able to work directly with a seasoned Telia Carrier Account Director.
- Access to Telia Carrier’s unique cloud-scale internet backbone ranked #1 in the world (Dyn Research).
